IND vs ENG Live: England lead the five-match series 2-1.© BCCI
Rohit Sharma hits Adil Rashid for a six and a four in the first over. Eoin Morgan has won yet another toss and England will be bowling first. All matches in the series this far have been won by the teams bowling first. This looks like the best batting pitch of the series so far, said Deep Dasgupta in his pitch report. So there’s opportunity for India to get the runs on the board and put a strong England batting line-up under pressure. Suryakumar Yadav and Rahul Chahar are in as Yuzvendra Chahal and Ishan Kishan go out for India. England are unchanged from the previous game. After being outplayed in the third T20I on Tuesday, India need to win to stay alive in the series. The hosts lost the previous encounter by eight wickets as Jos Buttler slammed an unbeaten 83 to guide the visitors home with 10 balls to spare. (LIVE SCORECARD)

Kishan is down with a groin strain, said Virat Kohli at the toss.
